Fellowship hosts ‘Ladies’ Night Out with Joni’

“Ladies Night Out with Joni” will be hosted Oct. 19 by Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship, 3580 Blackwood Drive. Doors open at 6 p.m. and a “Gift Basket Fund-raiser Extravaganza” is scheduled from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m.

Donations of items and monetary donations are needed for the baskets, which will be raffled off at the event. Joni and Friends also accept donations of new and used wheelchairs, metal crutches and walkers.

When Joni Eareckson Tada was injured in a diving accident in 1967 that robbed her of the use of her hands and legs, she wondered if she would ever smile and be hopeful again. She was dangerously close to becoming another statistic among the lists of the clinically depressed.

The darkness was lifted when friends from her church rallied around her family, offering help, hope and ascribing positive meaning to her affliction. It was the church that kept her connected to reality, opening doors of possibilities and paving the way for her to re-enter the mainstream of life.

More than 30 years later she labors alongside a worldwide staff of skilled and gifted individuals at Joni and Friends, who are committed to accelerating Christian outreach into the disability community around the globe. They are energized by the mandate of Jesus in Luke 14:13,23, “But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind and you will be blessed…make them come in, so that my house will be full.”

Tickets for “Ladies Night Out with Joni” are $15 per person. Group discount tickets are available for groups of 10. Tickets must be purchased in advance by calling (800) 485-1544. MasterCard and Visa will be accepted. All proceeds benefit Joni and Friends, the disability outreach of Joni Eareckson Tada.
